Cleansers - Andalou Naturals - Apricot Probiotic Cleansing Milk

Unfortunately this one has been a miss for me. I have liked a lot of Andalou products (like the skin food avo cocoa mask), but this cleanser was a disappointment. It comes out looking like a cream cleanser but quickly becomes very runny, it feels like you need to use more of this cleanser than you would another product of a similar consistency. It has a funny fake fruity smell which is not the …Read more

It's funny how an exercise in marketing can create so much hype and mystery around one jar of cream! I used a deluxe sample of this and can honestly say I'm pretty baffled by people forking out so much money for such a objectively average product. The reason I say objectively is that, no matter how much you love the lush texture and the feeling of luxury using it, at the end of the day …Read more

Cleansers - Kiehl's - Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil

I think this product is a good example of how a good product can be compromised by adding fragrance and fragrant plant oils. I love how well this removes makeup, how it emulsifies with water and the clean feeling after I use it. However, after I use it I notice my eyes stinging and my skin sometimes gets blotchy and red which is rare for me. It's nothing too major but it's something …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - Resist Omega+ Complex

I was impressed with the ingredients list of this and heartened when I saw reviews saying it had a lotion-like texture as I've tried a couple of PC serums before and the textures were awful and totally unusable. It feels like a fairly lightweight lotion so if you have combo skin or oily there's no need to apply a moisturiser afterwards, I just follow with sunscreen depending how my skin …Read more

URGH.

I bought this on a whim when Laura Mercier was shutting up shop in Australia as I thought it would be nice quality and it may be my last chance to buy it.

Genuinely the most regrettable product I've ever purchased. Normally I'm very careful about what I buy as I like to make sure I used every last drop of products so I'm not wasting them. It is …

Very "eh" product. I love cleansing milks, and Paula's Choice recommended this one so I tried it. I'm now trying to get through the bottle quickly to move onto the next thing. It feels like a dupe for Cetaphil to me, although the ingredients are better. I found it didn't really seem to cleanse my face properly, I've only been using it as a morning cleanser for that …Read more

Cleansers - Burt's Bees - Sensitive Facial Cleanser with Cotton Extract

Lovely thick texture like double cream, or old-fashioned cold cream. Nice to massage in at night time, I feel this might be too heavy or unnecessary for mornings. It's very gentle and takes off makeup reasonably well (I personally use an oil cleanser for that normally). Taking off one lippie as it doesn't rinse quite as clean as other milk/ cream cleansers I've used. I don't …Read more

As another person put it "my skin drinks this!". Yep! I've had the same feeling, my skin is plumped and refreshed when I use this. It's not heavy so perfect for my combination skin in the summer. It hydrates without making my skin congested. Yes, the smell is funky. But it disappears and I'm not someone who tends to get fixated on that. If something smells heavenly to me …Read more

I bought this on sale so it was even cheaper than usual and I really like it! I have combination skin and I find this under a sunscreen is the perfect amount of hydration. It doesn't pill with products containing silicone, it doesn't make my skin congested and it doesn't irritate my skin (I have sensitive skin), it has opaque glass packaging and a pump lid - all in all, pretty …Read more
